2012 Showies: Nominate Your Shooter of the Year


One of the most contested categories for the 2012 Showies is, the Shooter of the Year. Who will it be? COD Vita, Blops 2, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Borderlands 2, Killzone HD Trilogy?
There are so many bad shooters to choose from, thank goodness there is one that stands above the rest.
To nominate your shooter of the year comment or use the #2012ShowiesShooter on twitter.
I nominate the only shooter released this year that dared to change the game, the shooter that went to the edge, the shooter that made no compromises. Yes, you are correct, that game is Spec Ops: The Line.
It's goes without saying that Spec Ops completely redefined the shooter genre. The only way to properly describe it is to give the the 2012 Showies Shooter of the Year Award. Do the right thing and nominate it again.

Review: Pixel Ripped 1995 (PS VR)

Getting Pixel RippedPixel Ripped 1995 takes the player on a journey to a magical time, being a kid in the year 1995. This game within a game has you step into the shoes of David, a young boy who just wants to stay home and play video games. The games are played on a CRT within the virtual space, as various distractions go on around you. Most notably is David’s mom, who is constantly trying to get David to put away the video games and play outside. This creates moments where you must put down the controller and create a real-world distraction to allow you to keep progressing in the game.

The games David plays in Pixel Ripped 1995 are heavily inspired by the most popular games of the era. You can expect to play similar games to Sonic, Zelda, Crash Bandicoot, and a bunch more. The games span the 16-bit era and touch a bit on the 32-bit era, but Pixel Ripped 1995 is not just a childhood simulator, there is an overarching narrative to the game.
